Do you ever get too many calendars? Or feel badly throwing out an old picture calendar because the artwork in it is just too good?
I sometimes get calendars from charitable organizations that we support, but because my husband and I make our own family photo calendar every year, I really don't have a use for them. A while ago, I decided to use some of the full-page photographs in a calendar I received to make some envelopes.
This is the back of the clown fish envelope. Isn't it great? Some of these are great for kids' cards, too. They sometimes like the envelope just as well--or even better--than the card!
The quality of the paper is excellent, but it's not too heavy to mail. I used my WRMK envelope punch board to make these.
I've also made envelopes out of wrapping paper, typing paper and from the paper in a child's drawing pad. I am always looking for papers that will work for envelopes - just one more way to keep my cardmaking more affordable.
Thanks so much for stopping by, and remember to laugh--a little or a lot--every day.
